Is it just me or did anyone else hear दिल्ली as बिल्ली with the woman's pronunciation?

    When the voice speaks fast she says "sheher" but when speaking slowly she says "shahar". I have read in comments here it should be " sheher". Or is it just different dialects?

    'Shahar' is the phonetic pronunciation which some dialects do use but the most common pronunciation is 'Sheher'.

    This sort of deviation in pronunciations happens in a lot of words with ह.
